    The last time I flew, I noticed when placing the Inspire into the case that the travel mode was not locked...I could physically move the gear down, then back up to the landing mode configuration.

    I powered everything back up, flicked it out of then back into travel mode, checked, and still was able to move it.

    There was no crash, nor was there any indication of anything wrong during the last flight.

    Any suggestions?

    My guess would be the two retaining nuts on your main arms have come loose.
    DO NOT FLY IT IN THAT CONDITION!
    Find out why the arms are freely moving and if it is those arm nuts they will need retightening but also ensuring you have the angle of the arms correct.
    I would suggest a dealer take a look at this.

    Thank you!

    Can you provide a photo of the arm nuts that might need tightening?

    They are the large nuts on the T-Piece where the arms feed off to the motors.

    If it isn't those you will need to investigate further.

    Yes, a relatively hard landing a couple of months ago...but, just noticed something wrong the other day. It's flown several times since with no issues...but, I was just probably lucky.

    I'll be sending it in, thanks!
